The US is entering the era of the electric bicycle. The favored conveyance of New York City delivery workers, the e-bike has now gone mainstream: Sales in America have outpaced conventional bikes for three years running.

While conventional bike sales declined slightly in 2018 and 2019, e-bikes soared more than 50%, according to data from market research firm NPD. And they’ve gone into overdrive during the coronavirus pandemic. E-bike sales have more than doubled since January, outpacing even huge sales growth in conventional bicycles.

 

The US is following the global trajectory. Consulting firm Deloitte is predicting (pdf) a “surge” of 130 million e-bike sales in the next three years. By 2023, it expects 300 million e-bikes to be on the streets, compared to less than 10 million electric vehicles (including cars and trucks).

The ancestor of the modern bicycle was called the “Dandy Horse” when it was first introduced to the world in 1817. In the past 200 years, bicycles have developed from wooden-framed push carts to mechanically-driven, carbon fiber machines.

Modern bikes come in many different shapes and sizes and each type has a unique use. There are leisure bikes, sport bikes, commuter bikes, tandem bikes, bikes with three wheels (trikes), recumbent bikes, and many other combinations of chains, wheels, gears, brakes, and pedals.

Identifying the type of bicycle you have can be a difficult task. If it has two wheels, an upright seat, a pair of handlebars and pedals, it is probably either a mountain bike, a road bike, a sport bike, or a special combination of the three. Mountain bikes generally have larger, heavier frames with wide, knobby tires. Road bikes have smooth skinny tires and very light and stiff

Scoozy 250 SS E-bike—Sensible Simplicity.

Sleek and smooth, yet brightly colored, this Scoozy 250 SS was a great riding friend.

I considered titling this post “Urban Warrior”, as that is really the inspiration for this bike. It is designed to be a lightweight E-bike to take on the city and some of their tight legal regs for E-bikes. At under 40 lbs., and with great agility and strength, it seems to be the perfect bike for that purpose. It is a true pedelec (no throttle), which helps to further its intended goal for riders in those afflicted areas where E-bikes might not be as welcome as others. Plus it is fairly stealthy too. Maybe off track a bit, yet I think messenger bike with benefits could be envisioned as you ride.

Simple is as simple does. If you have looked around, you know most E-bikes are not this easy going
